As you are aware, the TVPOA has been monitoring the ongoing news related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) very closely. Currently, we are aware of four new cases, one case in Loudon County and three in Monroe County. As we continue to keep the safety of our residents, staff, and guests as our top priority, we are implementing new procedures to help encourage social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19.
In addition to the temporary changes and closures previously communicated, effective tomorrow March 22nd, all Recreation facilities are closed (Wellness Center, Chota Recreation, Kahite Community Center & Kahite Gym) Also, all recreation amenities are closed as well Pickleball, Tennis and playgrounds. Golf will only allow single riders per golf cart (with the exception of couples from the same household) until further notice.
These changes will be in effect through April 3rd, at which time we will re-evaluate the situation. We are monitoring this situation very closely and will make further adjustments as needed.
